I am starting the detox on Monday. I am not a huge fan of Tofu, but I plan to give it a shot. I do not think I can manage eating the tempeh however. Is there another substitute other than tofu?
Thanks for putting all this awesome info together in one place!
Hey Angela, You can substitute 1/2 cup beans or lentils, or 1/4 cup raw nuts for any of the tofu or tempeh dishes. Nuts, lentils, and beans are actually better for detoxing anyway b/c they are less processed than tofu/tempeh. I only include them because I feel like people need some variety. Have fun! xoxo
I’ve managed to convince my friends to go to a veggie restaurant for dinner so I can stay on track with the detox tonight. Which option would be best of these vegan gluten free dishes or are all of them ok?
sri Iankan sweet potato and cashew nut curry served with yellow basmati rice with peas and coconut tomato sambal
organic energising detox salad with beetroot, carrots, fennel, sprouting beans, sultanas, coriander and toasted seeds with apple, lime and ginger dressing plus organic tofu
stir fried asian vegetables cooked in sesame oil and plum sauce with garlic and ginger, fresh chilli and coriander served with organic brown rice, toasted cashews and marinated organic tofu
Hey Hazel, One of the first 2 would be best. The plum sauce is probably pretty sugary. You’re making me hungry btw! Have fun tonight 🙂 xoxo
Can we weat any meats like fish
No meats on the detox. They take too much energy to digest and we want our bodies using all their energy to mobilize and eliminate toxins. xoxo Jen
Can you do this for two weeks?
The detox can be done until the end of time if you want! Just be sure to supplement calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12. Cheers! xoxo
